    ^ Tessa used him when she had her pony years back, and I think he's doing Annie now. I've heard great things about his work!

    can I just say that I find it fascinating that you can get a few resets out of your shoes before they show wear! I never get resets - always a new set as there are so many rocks, etc. here.
    We don't have a crazy amount of rocks, but we do long miles. Had the farrier back to do a reset(6 weeks) on a thoroughbred mare we'd been trail riding on, he pulled the shoe, it was thin enough to fold in half with your bare hands. No reset for her, and those were steel shoes.

    I prefer aluminum fronts, would never do all 4 steel again (it's been almost 8 years since a horse I owned had a steel front). It definitely varies based on what you do with your horses. Speak with your farrier about what your goals are and work with them, and trainer to find the best combo for your horse. This is a job where you get what you pay for, don't just call anyone in the phone book!! If you don't feel 100% confident in someone's abilities, keep calling elsewhere.
